Montana Racial Equity Project hosts Dismantling Hatred workshop

Posted: Jan 27, 2018 10:07 PM Updated:

HELENA - The Montana Racial Equity Project held a Dismantling Hatred skills and strategies workshop on Saturday.

The workshop was aimed to help folks to become more aware of what others may deem as offensive. Attendees were asked to give their opinions about a series of scenarios showed on screen and also share how they would react in real life.

The group was diverse with many people from different backgrounds, cultural groups, and racial identities. Participants also separated into groups and discussed worldwide racial issues.

Jessica Lahr said she walked away from the workshop with better knowledge of equality issues in the world.

"Gaining the tools to actually use when we see those things happening, that we interject and that we acknowledge that it exists because these are real issues that face a lot of people, maybe not in our own communities, but they exist," Lahr said.

The Montana Racial Equity Project is a non-profit and non-partisan organization.
